    I drove from Andorra to Roscoff in 1 trip, no stopping for fuel, peeing, food or any thing.
    10 hours and about 700 miles that day, I was so happy to see the hotel room.

    I think there's a bit of cheating going on here! Surely "Driving without stopping" means just that, so all these transcontinental runs are ineligible as I guess a ferry/tunnel was involved?!

    So to my mind at least any non-stop driving is limited to within the UK and/or the range of your fuel tank......!

    Stopping for petrol is acceptable, i would say.
    But I agree, having a ferry trip, sleep over, etc in the middle of your journey makes it two journeys.... and, in terms of this thread, is a blatant attempt to mislead and cheat.
    Be ashamed of yourselves.

    Non-stop is non-stop.
    Sat in the drivers seat with out getting out or stopping the engine.
    stopping for fuel is stopping, stopping for a pee is stopping.
    so any one who stopped the car and removed their bum from the seat fail.

    Woo-Hoo I win.

    Yeah but if petrol stops are classed as a journey's end then the best anyone is going to get is about 500-600 miles, which makes for a boring thread.

    Lets compromise..... stop offs that are less than 10 minute are acceptable and not a journey breaker.


    PS: We are taking this FAR too seriously.

    PPS: I win.

    600 miles? Bahh, petrol drivers.
    700 miles on 1 tank and still had some left to get me back home in england. But did not want to pass up 91p PL on diesel.

    PS: But thats making it just as entertaining

    Ok, so 700 miles is the winning bid.

    Thread closed!


    See.... we need to allow for fuel stop offs otherwise we'll never know what is humanly possible. Machines already control much of our everyday lives, so I'm f***ed if I'm going to let them control this!
    So, my fellow human, lets take a stand and say "yeah machine, you might be enabling us to travel all these miles BUT you ain't controlling what is classed as one journey, because re-fueling IS allowed, so stick that up your exhaust and smoke it!"

    Are you with me brother?!



    PS: I've won.

    No, cause stopping it stopping.
    Unless you can do a rolling fill up, then its ok. lol

    Stopping for fuel is ok and at the same time wee.
    but stopping for sleep, ferry, train or swapping drivers is not.

    PS: I won cause I drove the furthest and the longest with out STOPPING.

    PPS: Since you have won, this is what you win for that thing that you won at.

    I'd say or else we would have to put time limits on twos.
    Cause they could take a really long time and be classed as a break or a kip.
